Lightbulb Buy a hat to benefit the Keene Valley FD/SAR

Hats Off to Keene Valley FD/SAR

Hand crocheted 100% wool beanie style hats
Just in time for the winter.

All proceeds benefit the Keene Valley FD/SAR

$20 donation/HAT


Hats are on a first come/first serve basis. PM me with the number and color of the hat that you would like to purchase. (please keep in mind that I am selling on 2 forums and it may already be gone) If the hat is yours I will give you the address to send me the check.


Go HERE for a look. I will continue to be making hats and will post new ones as I make them.


As some of you know I recently had an accident while climbing near Chapel Pond. Keene Valley FD/SAR was there for me. I hope you all will help me give back to this terrific group of people who may possibly be there for you someday.

None with a "Hawk Vittles" Logo

I'm shattered.

Nice looking hats though.

Merry Christmas Adam.

I wanted to make blaze orange hats but couldn't find any blaze orange wool yarn. Red is an option.

I have more hats made and will be posting pics soon.

I found a bright pumpkin orange yarn. The difference being that blaze orange almost glows.

I think "pumpkin" is just perfect. I'm still good with the order.

Adam will you be attending the winter gathering? I can give it to you then if the kegger doesn't happen by then.

Hi Hans...

Yes I think I can do that. Is hunter green closer to olive or forest green?

In photoshop we can find out exactly what colors those are. Remind me later...

Thanks,

I have some on the way. Its called "bottle green". Its hard to tell when ordering a color over the internet. Sometimes the yarn shows up and is not what I expected. If it looks good to me I'll let you know. I would imagine its similar to our NYS forest ranger green.

When I used the color picker in photoshop and searched google I came up with Army Green and Amber as the primary green/yellows in the patch. The lighter green was actually referred to as Dark Green, which means Army Green is darker than a dark green.

The Rangers and ECO's uniforms are considered forest green. Hunter is just a shade "bluer", very much like the frame behind "Forum Rules" in the green color scheme. I would send you my uniform pants, but they are hard to fit in an e-mail.

Codet wool pants are hunter green.
